When? Sunday 25th September

Where? Worldwide

What’s on?

For one day a year, thousands of Distinguished Gentleman (and genteel ladyfolk) in hundreds of cities worldwide press their cravats, starch their tweed and sit astride their classic-styled motorcycles to raise funds for prostate cancer research and awareness.

It’s a day all about spreading merriment while raising awareness of a really important issue that affects 1 in 8 blokes across the world. The fundraising supports research into men’s health by bringing together dapper riders of classic machines, café racers, bobbers, custom motorcycles, trackers and undefinable two-wheeled creations.

This ride is a celebration of the art of being dapper and the style of classic custom motorcycles. Think: monocles, trimmed moustaches, silk vests, crisp shirts and tailored suits. Do: bring your finest manners, neatest beards and a sense of fun and adventure. The styles of bikes should be reflective of classic motorcycle nature. Think 1970s and the decades before.

There is nothing to pay to ride, but sponsorship for taking part is encouraged to help raise funds for the charities involved.

In 2014, there were 20,000 smartly-dressed gentlefolk in 258 cities across 57 countries. In 2015, there were 50,000 smartly-dressed gentlefolk in over 500 cities across 90 countries. How many will straddle the saddle in the name of men’s health in 2016?
